Whether it’s through making that all-important connection, sharing an expertise with the group, or taking the lead on issues important to the association, these volunteers help everyone succeeds.

Gift of time #NVW2015

We continue our #NVW2015 celebration by thanking our volunteers for their time. ASAE estimated associations record nearly 200 million volunteer hours of community service*; add time on critical projects like association governance and professional mentoring. and that number skyrockets.
